I attended Game 5 of the Capitals / Flyers series on Saturday afternoon. Wow, what an amazing atmoshpere at the Verizon Center on that day. The Caps came into the game trailing 3 – 1 … and needed to win to keep the series alive.
They jumped out to a 2 – 0 lead and dominated the Flyers in the first part of the game. But, then the Flyers came charging back in the 3rd period.
At one point, they played Guns ‘n Roses “Welcome to the Jungle” during a time-out break — I can’t imagine an arena being much louder than what took place on that afternoon — plus, it was great to see so many Caps fans wearing red. Fortunately, they hung on for the win — they now play another “must-win” game tonight in Philly. If they win tonight, it’ll come down to an exciting Game 7 tomorrow night at Verizon Cetner.
